The new smartphone from Casa Elephone will take the name of Elephone S7 and guess what his appearance will be? Yes, Elephone S7 will have a design very similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S7 as for the front, and a back that resembles that of Xiaomi Mi5; obviously with different characteristics and much lower price.
Indeed Elephone S7 has the Curved display at the sides (Samsung style) for an effect borderless (without edges) and also the back with rounded corners like the well-known Xiaomi Mi5; the position of the rear camera also remembers the latter. Elephone S7 will be available 3 different variants that will differ in RAM, memory, display and other details that we will see; the "more powerful" variant will still have a very affordable price of around 200 €.
All models are now available in presale on GearBest, which will be the first store to have the first exclusive stocks. In the case of purchase, I continue to remind you, it is good to choose shipping method Italy Express for super-fast delivery (around 10 days) without customs.

The dimensions are 14.40 x 6.88 x 0.76 cm and weighs just 138 grams.
The most "advanced" model of Elephone S7, differs in many respects from the previous model mini. The display is wider, it has a diagonal from 5.5 ″ with resolution to 1920 x 1080p. The CPU is Mediatek Helio X20 Deca Core @2.0GHz with Mali T880 GPU, while as regards RAM and internal memory, we have two different cuts available: 3 GB + 32 GB o 4 GB + 64 GB.
Also here the memory is expandable through microSD up to 128 GB and on board we always find Android 6. It loses the fingerprint sensor, which is replaced by one iris scanner.
